Malachite is one
of the most beautiful stones in the world because of its different
shades of green that are blended in colorful bands throughout the
stone. Malachite is one of the oldest known stones, used for
thousands of years for its healing and transforming properties.
Malachite was considered to be a talisman for children. If a piece
of the stone were attached to an infant's cradle, all evil spirits
were held aloof and the child slept soundly and peacefully.
Malachite is said to also be an effective remedy for female
problems, especially regulating the menstrual cycle and cramps. As
for its spiritual properties Malachite is considered to be a
protection stone that overcomes fear of flying, absorbing negative
energies from the body, and in the workplace, Malachite protects
against noise, over-bright fluorescent lighting, and harmful rays
from technological equipment, negative phone calls and emails.
The stone is
similar in structural appearance to Turquoise which makes it nearly
impossible to find a piece large enough to make knife handles.
However, as in the case of Turquoise the stone can be reconstituted by grinding it to
a powder then adding a binding agent then dried. This makes
beautiful slabs of Malachite which can then be used for knife
The Buffalo Horn I use in my knives is actually from domesticated water
buffalo from Southeast Asia. There
are at least 130 million domesticated water buffalo and more people
depend on them than on any other domesticated animal. The
Buffalo Horn I used in this knife has streaks
and provides a nice contrast to the Malachite.
